Never have I once had a bad walk across this bridge. It's a lovely bridge with absolutely beautiful views and it's a good location to go after a filling dinner.

We walked over the bridge to get to the old carousel. It was a nice walk, good view. Not sure what else to say... its a walking bridge lol.

We visited this bridge and it is so nice....Chattanooga has an excellent vision for saving structures like this...You can walk over the Tennessee River on a 19th century bridge with no admission and stunning views. One more point for Chattanooga~

We got to enjoy the scenery from both sides of the bridge. The shops were cute and it is a nice, easy stroll. We struck up conversations with people and learned about some other places from the locals.

I didn't get married there but the bridge is pretty wide. I think you'd just need to find out the dimensions of it and go from there.
